Afghanistan’s Interior Minister Noor ul-Haq Ulumi and Turkish Minister of Science, Industry and Technology Fikri Isik are going to visit Iran in coming days for talks on education and academic ties, an Iranian deputy science minister said.
Hossein Salar Amoli said the foreign officials will visit Iran at the invitation of the country’s Minister of Science, Research and Technology Mohammad Farhadi.
The Afghan minister will visit Iran this week, while the Turkish official is expected to make a trip in the next two weeks, Salar Amoli added.
The foreign officials will visit Iran to hold talks on topics about higher education, as well as scientific and academic relations, he added.
Back in September, Science Minister Farhadi said Iran is ready to develop joint scientific and academic projects with the other countries.
“Scientific diplomacy is on the agenda of the science ministry,” he said, adding that the ministry is making efforts to implement joint scientific and academic projects with the cooperation of other countries around the globe.
